DOTHAN, AL (WTVY) It has been an exciting week for a young Dothan girl. After years in foster care, Savannah Singley now has a forever home.
“2951 days she’s been in foster care. Nine homes. We were nine. She’s nine years old. And she’ll never move again. No one is ever going to come pick her up. No one is ever going to come take her somewhere else. She has a forever family,” said her dad, Allen Singley.
Allen and Tara Singley always had an urge to become foster parents, but say the time just wasn’t right.
Tara said, “I guess what held me back was I kept thinking we would have more children. Bringing someone into your home and opening up your home is hard. It’s difficult. It’s not easy. But God did not call us to do the easy. He called us to be faithful.”
They took that leap of faith. The Singley’s began their foster care journey in March of 2015 through the Alabama Baptist Children’s Home. Their new daughter Savannah was placed with them in November. Ssince then, they’ve fostered nine other children.
